Enjoy a picnic at Packwood

Picnic at Packwood House, Warwickshire

There’s no better way to celebrate British spring and summertime than putting together a well-packed picnic and catching up with friends and family. With beautiful herbaceous borders, towering yew trees and wildflower meadows Packwood has lots of picturesque spots to enjoy an al-fresco lunch in the sunshine. Here are some of our perfect picnic spots.

Picnic area in the barnyard


This is the perfect spot if you need to pick up a chilled drink or ice cream from the café to go with your picnic. Nestled beneath the trees there’s lots of shade to keep you cool on a warm day and don’t forget to pop into the shop to browse our summer gifts, picnic items and tasty treats.

Our plant sales area is also next to the picnic benches if you need to pick up a few plants for your summer garden.

Picnic benches by the car park


This picnic area is the perfect spot to look out over the Warwickshire countryside and watch the lambs playing in the field. Enjoy this spot with your two-legged as well as four-legged friends and enjoy a walk around the estate after your al fresco feast.

The tennis lawn

One of our favourite spots to enjoy a picnic is on the tennis lawn at Packwood. Surrounded by views of the house, the lake and Packwood’s famous yew garden this makes an ideal spot to while away a few careless hours in the sun.

Spread out your blanket and enjoy a picnic by the lake.
